The time is now, I am ready!

I am looking forward to seeing the success of my friends & I through this community. I need to lose 200 lbs. Wow! This is the first time I have actually figured out how much I need to lose & then typed it out for all to see! It is kind of scary...

I am a full time minister, I play guitar. Guitars are my favorite instrument and I love to work on them & play them. I am an artist, I like to work with charcoals on rough paper and good pencils on lightly textured paper. I also do computer graphics and photography. I write poetry and I keep a journal of my days, thoughts & feelings.

My sister & I joined a gym, now we need to get regular in going to it. I really do love working out but my depression has been kicking me when I'm down. I need to get up again...

I am on the go three days out of the week in the ministry and two day sitting at my desk job. I walk quite a bit, but not for exercise. That is one thing I would like to change.

I have been on diets all my life and most do not work for me. I always dieted because my family said I should, but now, I am doing this because I say I should.

This time is different!!!

Robin Cook,

I love to cook and I wanted to be a chef at one time. I am an artist & a poet.

I miss my skateboarding days!

    Awww, I was just thinking about you so decided to come say hi. I didn't know you'd been sick. Sorry to see that. I hope you feel better soon. I remember you were sick in January too. You need to start putting oregano oil in your juice. I get rid of my sinus infections that way PDQ. I hate sinus infections and usually get double earaches with them too. Terrible pain. But not since I learned about the oregano oil. Anyway, I hope you're feeling better quickly~~the weather is too gorgeous to be sick!
